Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How does one get across her awesomeness in a few paragraphs? Let's
see... I grew up in Richmond with a great family (my parents and
sister still live there), although all of my other relatives live
in the UK. I went to undergrad at UVA, where I received my
bachelor's in Engineering. I work and live in Arlington now and
received my masters from GW. I guess those are the technical
Now for the mushy stuff... I am pretty outgoing and love hanging
out with my friends and meeting new people. I love to laugh and
seek out comedy wherever I can find it. I seem to make my friends
laugh. I dabble in things like golf, sailing, and swimming when I
When I get the time to volunteer, it's usually with the humane
society or the local animal shelter. I care very deeply about
domestic animals, wildlife, nature, the environment, and you will
find I am very liberal in almost all of my social beliefs. I
believe in the kindness of humanity and live a relatively

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, I have a great job, a good home, and a great group of
friends. So, I guess I'd say my life is going pretty well.
Although, right now, I'd like to find someone special to share it
I currently work as a project manager and am lucky enough to live
within walking distance of my office. After work, you'll usually
catch me at the gym, out to dinner with friends, at the occasional
happy hour, or just thankful for a night in with the tv and a
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a little nerdy. Despite my apparent ease at fitting in with
main stream America, I have a passion for science, science fiction,
and rediculousness like the renaissance festival. I have a fondness
for Star Trek TNG, Renaissance festivals, Star Wars, Stephen
Hawking, Brian Cox, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and other science-y

I'm friendly and have a nice smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies - I generally like comedies or action epics. Some of my
favorites are The Princess Bride, the Goonies, Shawshank
Redemption, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Monty Python's Holy Grail,
etc. I also love most things Disney, Pixar, or Muppet
Music - my music taste isn't very sophisticated, I'm afraid. I
usually listen to pop or soft rock.
TV - I definitely have a few shows I'm addicted to - Futurama (even
though it's off the air, I watch re-runs all the time), Big Bang
Theory, Daily Show, Colbert Report, Last Week Tonight, and just
about anything on Discovery, NatGeo, or Animal Planet. Wow - that
makes it seem like I watch a lot of tv...
Food - I love food. I will try anything (at least once). There are
so many foods I like it's hard to pick a favorite. The only thing I
find yucky is grapefruit. In my opinion it's way to sour to be
considered a fruit and it has stolen the good name of the grape,
which I do like.
Books - The types of books I like are extremely varied. The two
genres you'll usually see me reading are non-fiction astronomy or
physics books (i.e. Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking, Brian Greene) or
classics that I missed in high school. Some other random books I
loved include the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the Life of Pi,
and Gone Girl. And yes, I read and liked the Hunger Games trilogy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The metro
2. My DVR
3. Evenings with friends
4. The ability to travel and see/try new things

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Does everyone see colors the same way? I mean, I know my brain and
your brain are both interpreting the same wavelength as "red", but
is what my brain presents as "red" the same thing your brain
presents to you?
And why do people feel it is necessary to takes pictures of their
meals and post them to the world? What are they trying to
accomplish with that?

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually I'm out to dinner with friends or maybe at a happy hour.
Although there are some nights where a nice night in or at the gym
are on the menu. Ok - I usually bail on the gym on Friday nights.
